Travelling with my pet


Planning your stay with your pet

The following information will greatly help you to make the most of your stay in Northern Finistère with your dog, cat or maybe even your hamster. You will find everything you need, from pet-friendly housing and activities to vet contact details and dog-friendly beaches.



If my cat/dog: 

  • is chipped or tattooed
  • owns an updated vaccination record or a passport 
  • can be kept on a lead, has a collar or a harness (when it belongs to a muzzle of first or second category)

Then I am required to :

  • Keep it on a leash
  • Always carry a dog waste bag with me and pick up my pet’s excrements ( and I make sure to throw it in the bin)
  • Be in possession of its identification number 

Dog-friendly accommodations 

On the following webpage, you will find a list of dog-friendly accommodations :


Cyling, canicross, natural areas

All year round, when you are hiking, please make sure to watch your dog and its behaviour towards people and other dogs. Ideally, if not kept on a lead, it should remain in sight (100 meters max) and it should be able to come when called.

From April 15th to June 30th, during the fauna reproduction period, your dog must be kept on a lead when walking off-path trails in woodlands and forests.

If you want to practice canicross or mountain bike with your dog, make sure to always take a few seconds to read the information sign when entering a natural area or site. In most cases, it indicates the rules to observe with your dog to preserve the environment as much as possible.


Beaches :

Since 2018, dogs have been allowed on Finistère’s beaches from 1 October to 31 May. From 1 June to 31 September, dogs are allowed on the following beach only : – Plage de l’Aber in Roscoff Beaches are both a playground for our four-legged friends and a feeding and resting area for birds. In order to protect them, avoid letting your dog chase birds, as they are also using the beach to rest and recover their strength. The 45-km of coast, includes 22 km of sandy beaches so enough to allow space for everyone !
